W. Haggard Roosevelt and the Deep South There has been considerable discussion as to whether the southern states would support President Roosevelt for a fourth term. It has been claimed by many that the "nigger" states of the south are bitter on the president's recognition o£ the negroes, and particularly so in regard to Eleanor Roosevelt's partiality for the dusky men and women of the deep south. Of course we know that the negro question is a delicate subject with southerners and so far as we are concerned we are inclined to leave the matter in their hands within reasonable bounds. This writer has spent several winters in the south and knows the feeling of the southern whites in regard to the colored race. As a general propo- situation we think that the Negroes are treatcrl quite properly, considering their limitations. In the recent primary in Mississippi the other day every candidate who came through to the "runoff" is against the administration and the New Deal. This means that Mississippi will have an anti-New Deal governor for the next four years. Not one of the candidates spoke a good word for a fourth term for President Roosevelt. They praised his foreign policy but denounced the New Deal and the Roosevelt tendency of meddling in the race question. Sixty-four per cent of the votes cast went for men who DAMNED the New Deal. However, after all is said and done we are betting dollars to doughnuts that you will find Mississippi and the other southern states in the democratic column next year. Habits are hard things to get rid of. Poll Favors Business That the people of the United States are sink of the racketeering labor unions was shown in a recent poll taken by the Gallup Poll people. In the much discussed Detroit speech of Vice President Henry Wallace our Henry "slammed" big business and especially most any business, big or little, that had the temerity to antagonize any act of the New Deal or President Roosevelt. This started the Gallup folks up and they have made a survey of the 48 states of the Union, asking the following question: "Most people believe that government should not be controlled by any one group. However, if you had to choose which would you prefer to have control of the government, big business or the labor unions?" Forty-five per cent voted that they would prefer to have big business in control, and twenty-six favored the labor unions to run things. Twenty-nine were undecided. It is safe to say that most of those preferring labor unions to run the government were members of some labor union and admirers of the big labor bosses. A breakdown of the vote showed 58% voting 4'or business were republicans to 25% democrats. Now may we have a vote by the Gallup institute on how many voters favor John L. Lewis for president? "Smear" Campaigns Deadly Humboldt Republican: A recent announcement says that Willkie has stated that he will do nothing to placate the "old guard" in the Republican party. That's the sort of chap Willkiu is. However, if one can believe the Gallup polls he (Willkie) is losing strength with the people. Governor Dewey of New York now outranks him. That may be due to the fact that Willkie can not be controlled and the "interests" are after him. By interests we mean Col. McCormick and other prominent reactionaries. They are reading out of the party everyone who does not agree with them. Also it is well to remember that a consistent campaign of misrepresentation can seriously injure any man's standing with the people. Many a good man has been made unpopular by a consistent campaign o£ misrepresentation. Remember how former-president Hoover wa's "smeared? The same tactics resulted in the undoing of former Senator Albert B. Cummins, also Senator Dickinson. The voters believe hundreds of untruths about Dickinson. And still he could have served the state better than Senator Herring ever did. * * » • -- '"VTji 1 • Henry Wallace Telling 'Em Wright County Monitor: Henry Wallace has his wires badly crossed. His premises are wrong. His statements represent conditions as he wishes them, not as they are. And that slogan "Banishing Want." There is no such thing! There is ho., human situation where someone does not want something. If the statement was to "relieve poverty" it would be more practical. And still that never can be completely accomplished. The practices of some men create poverty just as industry creates thrift. There is always poverty where there are human beings because some people throw away all things material until they have none left. Even the Good Book tells us that the poor we will always have with us. But then you must remember that the Bible was written away back even before the "Horse and Buggy" Days." Maybe Henry has condemned it. As Henry Wallace portrays it the coming fight is between the giant corporations and the people —the "peepul." It isn't. It's between the advocates of democracy and those who wish to throw us into a dictatorship. Henry Wallace let only one truth slip out of the bag. That is his desire to tell all the people what they must do and when they shall do it. He calls it "planning." He and those with him plan and you do. He is in Iowa seeking the endorsement of the people to continue the plan and tell us his conclusions or convictions and see that we execute them. The old principle of Democracy where the people tell their representativs whut they want has been discarded. The plan this nation was built on and thrived on and grew great on was that the people elected representatives in the legislative halls to do their will or bidding has been reversed. The New Deal way is to elect men to plan and tell us what they have planned. * * * Bombing at Swea City Swea City Herald: The council room was hot and stuffy, and so the gentlemen moved outdoors under the water tank where the grounds are kept spic and span by Street Commissioner Ole Molan, and where the air was much cooler. Nobody, as usual, showed up to kick about the budget, and the mayor and council were getting set for a dull evening. But they reckoned without the colony of pigeons which occasionally roosts up there in the water tower. The pigeons were billing and cooing up above, and the august town officers were sitting down below on the ground patiently waiting for time to run out so they could go home. Suddenly one pigeon decided to start bomo- ing practice. His very first attempt was very successful, indeed. He scored a direct hit on one of our town officials. Later, when the excitement died down, and the officers were able to discuss the attack more cooly, it was decided that the pigeon was equipped with one of those bombsights which American bombers use with such deadly accuracy over their targets. * * * Now For a Sales Tax Northwood Anchor: If a general sales tax on food and clothing is an injustice to the less well- to-do of the nation isn't the sales tax on gasoline, radios, electric utilities, automobiles, liquors, tobacco, confectionery, amusement tickets, cosmet- t^MMdHMaaiMwai* Dewey for the republican nomination. To many this will mean Mr. Willkie is released from the stone around his neck in the support of Lewis, which can do a candidate but little, if any, good and that his chances for the republican nomination have been much improved. Lewis deserted Roosevelt in 1940 when he found that he could no longer control the president in making concessions to union labor. The break with Lewis proved to be one of the wisest things that President Roosevelt could have done. Lewis, by breaking with Willkie, has perhaps given the latter the republican nomination on a platter. Kossuth Has Only One Woman Marine Kossuth county has given its share of fighting men to the United States Marines, but to date only one of its quota of two women has en- kv A LHd* of Thli ~ A Llttli of Tin! « Net Much of Anything Had a visitor the other day and it was Chas. Egel, from the. Irvington neighborhood, and he and I have a common ailment, we both fiddle, but he's got me cheated because on account of he's a left handed fiddler, and thats something I cant do. Tried to fiddle left handed one time and every dog in the neighborhood set up a terrible howl and the neighbors told me to practice left handed fiddling in the stock yards. But Chas. and I had a nice visit and we both agree that fiddling has its compensations because on account of a guy can pick up the fiddle and saw away and forget all -about duns, gas rationing, 'n everything. And now in comes Clarence Phillips and says he supposes I take a bath in coffee now that there is plenty of it or at least I can waller in the saucer and don t need to worry about spilling a drop or two and which I don't. I don't take a bath to begin with and in the second place I don t drink out of a saucer and in the third place I never spill my coffee and I don't never waller in anything in the first place. Sure, there' plenty of coffee now and the gulpers here are really going to town—two cups lots of times now. Pete Schumacher was over from Whittemore the other day and he believes in listening to me and he said he parked his car right across the street from a church and which is the right thing for those Whittemore birds to do instead of in a half block on North Dodge street near a certain dispenser of certain refreshments. First thing you know folks will begin to think that the Whittemore boys have other things to look after here except what is sold on North Dodge and which is not being carried away in gunny sacks because on account of it would leak out, so to speak. Looks like the coffee gulpcrs will have to look after some of its members because on account of Friday there was Fred Timm eating an ice cream cone instead of gulping a nickel's worth of coffee which maybe somebody else was unlucky enough to pay for and Dr. Janse happened in and he felt Fred's pulse and had him say "Ah-h" and looked at his larynx and had him count to ten and then he said it was psychology and maybe Fred w.ould come out of it O. K. President O. F. Peterson is writing a letter to all of the Gulper membership urging them to stick with the gulping and if it so happens health won't permit gulping then to ask for a withdrawal card because on account of we can't have cone habitues in the gulping association. And Clarence Pollard says that some of the boys are now asking for ice cubes to put in the coffee so they can gulp it in E hurry and that should be cut out too. I was down in Tfes OTofn«s Saturday and every time I go to' thai town I realize how big it is- and Lewis Support No Asset ,.„. ; We have always had more or less admira- tion'for Wendell Willkie, and had expected to vote for him for president in 1940 until the time that John L. Lewis, the labor racketeer, bolted Roosevelt and went over to Willkie. That settled it so far as we were concerned. We made up our ^ mind that Roosevelt would beat Willkie on ae- f^" tooth "powder, shaving lotions and a long list count of the support of the labor boss, whom most of o ther articles also an injustice? Statistics people detest We finally voted for Roosevelt show that the less well-to-do are the heaviest From the Files they had before. . _ , - . . that from them must come much of the sixteen billion more dollars the government demands from the sale of war bonds. Everybody else is being milked aoout to the drying up point. " * « * Business Sense Wanted Humboldt Republican: President Roosevelt's latest radio message has been dubbed by his opponents as a political gesture. That is because he expressed himself in favor of giving discharged soldiers more pay—money borrowed on their credit. It is strange that the president can think o; no other favor than more money borrowed on the credit of .the tax-payers. Apparently to him there is no end to public credit. If pur nation is to survive President Roosevelt will have to be replaced with a president that understands the weight of an obligation expressed in dollars and cents. « * « We Are Worse Than Savages aaie oiuy unc ^ i» v,^".

That is true in a sense, and false in another sense. There are always people seeking to block moves for the benefit of human- itv But those who oppose the visionary programs laid down by the New Dealers are not actuated by government fiat. That sort of which we are drifting and towarafwhich we are being pushed along by Henry Wallace and the rest of the New Dealers—always ends in a grand "bust" as it did in Germany when it took a bushel basket of currency to contain enough value to buy a loaf of bread.

Her ca had become unmanageable ant the accident occurred. A't the same time of the accident, Dale Thiel drowned while swimming near Frazee, Minnesota, on vaca tion from Swea City. A smoke at the W. A. Whit- Grocery Store had caused the fir department and citizens to com out of their holes at midnight fo a bit of excitement. Joseph Rahm, of St. Benedict had passed away at his home. H was a well known citizen of S Benedict and an influential citi zen of Kossuth county. The Algona baseball team ha shut out Fenton 6-0, which place them in line to play the stat champions from Des Moines. An autogiro had made quite sensation with the Algona crow, at the county fair grounds. A that time there were just a few and a privilege to see one brough great enthusiasm to the citizens around here. Joseph Frinek, of Atwater, 'Minn., was burned to death when his truck ran into an early mom- ing train. Mrs. Victor Robinson had died suddenly after eating a chicken dinner. It was thought that she had been poisoned by the chicken. There had been few changes made in the teachers of the Algona schools. Today. . . war . . . and marriages ... are causing a considerable number of changes in the school faculty. TWENTY YEARS AGO The W. C. Dewel flivver had been ditched east of town when the car was side-swiped by a car owned by J. C. Hogan, of West Bend. Little Bobbie Dewel had received a cut on the head and was rushed to the hospital. Gordon Dewel was driving. Mrs. Henry Ried had died suddenly after an illness of two days. She had been in Scotland. Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Foster and Mrs. T. H. Robinson had gone on an auto trip to the west, which included a visit to the Yellowstone National Park. George and Carlotta Kanoff had been run into, by a Minnesota car and dragged across the street The two were riding on a bicycle and were hurt quite badly. A dope fiend had entered the Dr. Wallace and Dr. Cretzmeyer offices in the search of drugs, and had found some morphine in Dr. Wallaces office. • In those days the little town of Burt had been thriving very successfully with H. R. Cowan remodeling and building many business places w the town. ext time I'm going to take on a ot of spinach before I go and Iso take a dourse in footballing o I can make my way down the treet Saturday afternoon, because n account of you have to do a lot f tackling to make your way «in ic crowds on the sidewalk and ie cops ought, to do something bout it and I went into Younkers that's one of the big stores) and t wasn't to buy anything but just o get in out of the heat and they ave an escalator, escalator, or ome sort of lator and you step n/it and it takes you upstair nd you don't get out of breath nd I went up and down and was .aving a whee of a time and all f a sudden I had to quit that be- ause on account of I had to heave nd they din't have any coal mckets handy to heave in so I >ot out of there. But it's a nice big store they have, bigger 'n jur court house but I didn't buy nothing because on account of j ould get everything right here n Algona only our merchants don't have escalators, etc. And Des Moines :s a wide open place, the gates are always open _nd you can have a key to the own, and they don't make any jones about flaunting the state iquor laws ' right in your fac< and I went into one place am hey didn't have my brand of but- ermilk and so I ordered a koke and for which they stuck me 20c and a friend of mine right beside me paid 50 cents for a thimble full of whiskey and he said, i* wasn't any too good at that bu' evidently it wasn't against the aw to sell whiskey in Des Moines after 5 o'clock and a guy came to he table and asked me for my hat (which I was holding in my ap) and said the rule's of th< touse were to check my hat anc did. and when I went to get the lat they stuck me two bits am hat was more'n the hat was ,vorth it being so near Septembe: 1st but I had to have something 0 wear to keep the soot off my bald head but I've a notion to sue the outfit and we visited several so-called clubs and I stack to my koke and it was never less 't 20c and there was whiskey awe ;in and brandy and wines galore not sold over a bar' wfti'cft if against the law, but brought by 1 usually pretty girl to whom ym an't argue about liquor laws- of he state. I don't know mucii about the ..rice of whiskeys but it looks to me like those profiteers in Des Moines could serve a better grade ! or 50c per thimbleful—look, I Jind there are better 'n twenty thimblefuls in a fifth and for which they pay probably $2.24 and sell it for $10 at 50c per drink and so they can pay their rent by only selling a couple of fifths, so to speak. Kinder looks ike the republican administration ought to do something about this flaunting the liquor laws in Des Moines and then they'd get the prohibition vote next election. There's a thought! Gerald Voigt of Fenton was in town Sunday and he came down to have a look at my garden and somebody told him it was full of hay and so he didn't go down because on account of he was afraid it might start up hay fever and that's something he didn't want and he suggested that I raise a different kind of hay next year something which didn't have any hay fever germs in it. That was nice of Gerald and I'll do that K«*t Sunday 1 ex»tet to «i( chicken at St. Benedict and at the same time organize a No^Tie club there as the men folks Rave been wishing td go on record on this worth while project and at the same time show Wesley that there are some no-necktlers in St. Benedict. Already there is quite Some competition amongst* some of the boys there for office's. The two Grandgenetles, A. J. and John, and the two Roskopfs, N. H. and John, and E. F. Arndorfer and John Preuschl and George Ferstl and Bill Arndorfer have all expressed a willingness to get behind the organization and are willing to hold some office if necessary. Be seeing you, you fellows at St. Benedict, next Sunday. Have your membership fees all counted up and let's go to town Joan Marie Bode is spending this week with her sister at Fort Dodge, Mrs. A. W.
